This Saturday the New York Red Bulls host D.C. United at Red Bull Arena. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m ET.
Here are the Keys to the Game, presented by TriHonda Dealers:
In Need of Sixth Home Win
Although RBNY recently suffered their third home loss of the season, the Red Bulls could still conclude this current four-game homestand with two wins.
In the upcoming days, New York are scheduled to play away against Columbus and Inter Miami CF, and back-to-back games against NYCFC.
Getting the win against rivals D.C. United will set the Red Bulls in a great spot ahead of their busy month.
This season, New York have scored 13 of their 23 goals at Red Bull Arena.
Look for Klimala, Fábio To Get on Scoresheet
Patryk Klimala and Fábio combine for seven goals this season, and with the month ahead, New York will need their scoring contributions in order to climb the table.
Fábio has provided seven assists, while Klimala has tallied four.
It’s evident that both strikers are fundamental in helping New York get on the scoresheet.
D.C. United Have Lost Last Two Away Games
Even though D.C. United defeated Philadelphia Union 3-1 in their recent game, they’ve lost their recent away games at New England (3-2) and Nashville (5-2).
Hernán Losada’s team has only achieved two away wins this season.
In their first meeting back in July, D.C. defeated New York 1-0.
